No, this guitar is not for everyone.
For you to LOVE this guitar...
You have to love the sound of Texas Special Pickups.
You have to love a good, solid and bold humbucker.
You have to love the greasebucket tone circuit.
You have to love super high quality construction quality.
You have to love the best sounding sustain on any strat. (any that I have played off the shelf with no mods.)

The quality of the Am Special that I bought is amazing to me. Not only does the finish look perfect, but the neck absolutely feels perfect, no sharp fret ends. The neck is as snug in the neck pocket as you can get. I could not fit the edge of a razor in between the neck and body on either side if I tried.

I'm sure that you already have some experience with the Texas Special pickups. They have a hot vocal midrange with tons of character for blues and rock. The surprise to me was how much I love the Atomic Humbucker. This Fender humbucker has a bold and... Read more

When mine arrived it needed some tweaks. Some slight fret buzz on the low E and A strings required the action at the bridge to be set a little higher, which solved the problem. Also, the tremolo bridge was riding way too high, so I adjusted the claw springs -- and that problem was cured too.
UPGRADE THE STRINGS: I made a major improvement to the sound by removing the stock strings (which have plastic ends in the block), and replacing them with the Fender "3250L Super Bullets" (with metal 'bullet' ends in the block) -- the same strings as those on the American Standard Strat. With these strings the sound comes to life -- and a nice chimey sounds from the single coils. The humbucker ain't bad either -- it has lots of gain gives me the AC-DC sound with my 40 watt Marshall tube combo.
During the first week after upgrading the strings, I had to adjust the tuning regularly. But they are bedded-in, the instrument stays in tune really well.
All in all, a great guitar.
